Google's newest interface mockup changes the navigation
Take Google's newest look and feel for a test spin

Ars Technica has a one-line hack on how to grab a glimpse of the new Google interface.  The new interface falls somewhere between the GMail interface and the old Google search, with a strong emphasis on non-fixed width element placements. The new navigation also shows page-rank style rankings for search results among the various search portals like Froogle and Google Local.  As far as we could tell, only the main Google Search results page changes after entering the hack.

Ars Technica did not provide a way to remove the interface, but if you place the following code (all one line) in your address bar and hit enter, the next visit to Google will return to the old interface:

javascript:alert(document.cookie="PREF=ID=0TM=0:LM=0:S=0;path=/;domain=.google.com")

The new interface seems much friendlier to extremely small, but non-WAP interfaces.  On my Qtek 9100, with WAP disabled, the interface is actually fairly useable with the exception of the Sponsored Links.  Links for Google's Sign In are not present in the version we saw, but we suspect the new nagivation column would put those features on the left hand side of the page.
